Delta Gamma Fraternity Mourns the Loss of Collegiate Member Ashira Rabinowitz

Columbus, Ohio [December 14, 2023] – It is with deep sorrow that we share the passing of collegiate member Ashira Rabinowitz, Gamma Mu-Florida State.  

Ashira joined Delta Gamma Fraternity in the fall of 2021 and was an initiate of the Gamma Mu chapter at Florida State. Gamma Mu-Florida State shared in a statement, “Ashira was such a blessing to this world. She had the brightest smile and most contagious laugh. She fully embodied our chapter, always a friend to all and someone we could count on. Her energy filled every space—she spread pure joy and happiness to all who knew her. She loved hard and was never afraid to show it. She would want us to be happy, live every second to the fullest, and love each other. We will forever be living in her memory and carrying on her legacy. Gamma Mu will not be the same without her, but we know that her energy will always live in and around us.” 

Fraternity President Dr. Amy R. Ayres, Alpha Iota-Oklahoma, shared “Delta Gamma Fraternity is deeply saddened to learn of the passing of collegian Ashira Rabinowitz. Our sisterhood mourns her loss, and we send our heartfelt condolences to Shira’s family and her Florida State sisters. We are holding the Gamma Mu chapter of Delta Gamma close to our heart during this difficult time.”
